What does your dev environment look like

Hey all - it's been a while :) Several years back I began using VirtualBox which eventually led me provisioners like Vagrant and that eventually led to CM tools like Puppet, which I use today. All in all the experience has been positive, albeit frustrating at times. I use NetBeans as an IDE - it's s...

Merging approved changes

Been a while since I posted - figured I'd through this out there to hear others experiences, suggestions, etc... I am part of a small team of 3-4 developers. We host on GH using private repos. I am the primary DM/QA/BA/etc. Despite our limited automated tests - I still need to manually go over the a...

Application platforms

I am considering writing a white paper based on my views and understandings of the market place/ecosystem of open source web-based (PHP focused) applications, platforms, frameworks and libraries. Please consider this an initial (unorganized) brain dump. My hope is to harvest new ideas or concepts wh...

Re: Reviewing PHP-Based Mailing List Products/Projects

They are all poorly done, IMO. Like already stated, it's a lot of work, existing web services like CampaignMonitor, etc do the job very well already.

Re: Should I develop atop WordPress?

WordPress is not the framework of choice, personally. I'd prefer Drupal, module architecture is slightly cleaner. The hang up for msot people is that Drupal interface is very complex. For a developer it makes sense, for the end user probably not.

Cheers,
Alex

Re: control flow in php

Do what has already been suggested...use .htaccess and index.php to handle the request, dispatching to appropriate controller:action pairs.

Re: Multiple-table Models

Or should I make another model that represents the overall item of interest and contains the 5 db table classes? Interesting question one I still struggle with occasionally. Personally I would implement each as a separate distinct model, with it's own business logic, validations, etc. However I wou...

Re: Security consulting - who the heck would pay for it?

Tough market, IMO. For starters, most small/medium software factories probably prefer to have a on-staff security "expert" - which leads me to my next question. How do you distinguish yourself from other developers who also claim to be security experts? Personally, if I had a small team I ...

Re: Designing a basic CMS

Great advice given above, although I wouldn't say Drupal is better than Joomla, that is subjective to a developers experience, requirements and the end-users involved in managing a site. Drupal is not work the lazy or non-tech savvy. WordPress is a far better choice if user simplicity is a must. Joo...
